Priests take new path from scandal-plagued order

"Dozens of Legion priests have moved to leave the order in the year since the Vatican launched a sweeping investigation of Maciel and the Legion," said Jack Keogh, a former priest who recounts 20 years in the order in his memoir, "Driving Straight on Crooked Lines."

"Many, especially younger American recruits, resent the fact that the Vatican and their superiors hid the truth about Maciel from the rank and file for so long," he said.

Actually, I said a lot more! But such is the world of journalism. A long interview to produce only one small quote - although I like to think that perhaps I had some impact on the "tone" of the article which appeared in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. You can read the full story, by Annysa Johnson,  about two Legion of Christ priests who have recently joined the Milwaukee diocese HERE.
